You'd have to look pretty hard to find a better restaurant in the greater Danbury area. They have a great menu that is updated seasonally, the ingredients are fresh and sourced locally as much as possible and the service is friendly, efficient and accommodating. There's also a rooftop offshoot called Ecco which has a open-roofed bar and lighter fare. We've... More

Service is wonderful in a trendy location. Food is always delicious and their recommendations for wine are always very good. They have some tried and true dishes and often quite a number or creative combinations that we really enjoy! It can be a little loud in there, but it doesn't bother us at all!

La Zingara is one of my favorite restaurants and it's so close to home, I feel so lucky. The menu is changed seasonal, the food is always fresh and great quality, and the specials are amazing. I don't know how the chef does it, but he makes incredible meals using combinations I'd never consider in my kitchen, and they are... More

Traditional brunches abound, but a unique brunch with live music, local food and great service makes Sunday special. Priced right and with relatively bottomless bloody marys and mimosas you can't go wrong. A can't miss brunch! Get there early and be prepared for a short wait.

Ate there after consulting Tripadvisor and it was magnificent! All four of us agreed that this is the best Italian cuisine we've ever had. We went after seeing a film at the Bethel Cinema, which is nearby and it was a perfect compliment to seeing a fine film. The menu is extremely creative. For example, I never heard of calamari...

On a slow Wednesday night we stopped by to sit at the bar to have dinner. Perhaps seven tables in the main dining room were occupied. We've been here many times before, for dinner, parties and when introducing new friends to a great menu. Our bartender, a third generation Bethel resident described the specials, we split the fresh baked clams... More

A jewel of a restaurant in a small town with so so restaurants, this one stands out by far. I think this restaurant could be more pleasant to look at, rather bland inside but the food is awesome and well prepared so don't let that fool you. We come for a great meal and that is what you'll get. We... More
